Further in the spirit of hardlinks - a useful little script you may
want to check out is faster-dupemerge:

http://www.hungrycats.org/~zblaxell/projects/dupemerge/dupemerge.html#faster

It can free up lots of disk space, lost when files or large trees of
folders are suddenly renamed or moved and dirvish/rsync has to
transfer them all over again.
